A Shattered Crown is the third quest in Diablo III and introduces that player to the Blacksmith and grants the ability to open a Town Portal back to town. The quest involves the search and restoration of King Leoric's crown, which is needed to unlock the lower levels of the Cathedral and to eventually awaken the Skeleton King. The Crown can be found in one of the three crypts in the Cemetery of the Forsaken - the correct one will have a Defiled Crypt Level 2 doorway inside. The wrong ones will have a portal back to the Cemetery. Upon completion of this quest, Blacksmith's Belongings will spawn near the Blacksmith which contains Mira's Letter to Haedrig.
